Abstract

Die belangrikste algemene motiewe vir naamsverandering word bespreek met tiponimiese veranderinge gesien en geanaliseer as 'n ideologiese daad deur diegene met mag beklee en in staat om 'n bepaalde status quo te wysig ten einde gesag, wettigheid en selfrespek te bevestig. Die kwessies wat aangeraak word is: die uitwerking van die "wedloop om Afrika" op die Kontinent; die oproep om uhuru en die aard van Afrikanisering en die daaruit voortvloeiende wegdoen met koloniale landname; en ten slotte die aard en oorsprong van die Afrika landname wat na uhuru weer in ere herstel is.


This article inevestigates the most important general motives for name changing with toponymical changes being viewed as an ideological act by those invested with power to change a specific status quo in order to assert authority, legitimacy and self-esteem. Various concepts are touched upon: colonialism, imperialism, exploitation, anti-colonialism, decolonization and uhuru, the African word for freedom. During the period of decolonization this call for the shaking off of colonial oppression through the achievement of national independence echoed throughout the Continent.
